MINNECHAUG 
REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL 







We were determined to create a school, 
its clubs and activities, its reputation. We 
knew that two years was a short time to 
formulate a spirit that would have to last 
and endure, a vitality that would mean 
Minnechaug to generations of students. 

We, the seniors, are the first graduating 
class. Perhaps on us more than on any 
other class depends that essence, that basic 
spirit of Minnechaug that is more than 
brick, cement and tile. How do we feel as 
we review two years in the pages of the 
FALCON? Can our dreams, ambitions, 
nurtured hopes and desires be represented 
— united and cohesive — in mere pictures 
and words? This is an effort in that di- 
rection.

before the school opened. Officers during its first year (1953-59) were Ben Bump, presi- 
dent; Linda Willis, vice-president; Carol Paulk, secretary; and Ann Googins, treasurer. 
Mr. Reynolds and Mr. Thompson were the advisors. This Student Council produced the

duties of officers, the powers of the council, the election of officers, and the various 
functions of the organization. 

The 1959-60 council, with Linda Willis, president; Sidney Low, vice-president; Carol 
Paulk, treasurer; and Sally Eldridge, secretary; was responsible for the first annual 
school picnic. 

In 1960-61, the council sponsored a school show, the second annual school picnic, 
and three dances. Officers for that year were Linda Willis, president; Donald Klein,

The cheerleaders, a group of fourteen

portant job of raising school spirit by per- 
forming at all varsity and some junior* var- 
sity football and basketball games. Having 
been entered in various cheerleading com- 
petitions, the team has, to date, won two 
trophies. As a means of raising money they 
have also sponsored several successful rec- 
ord hops. For the past two years, the girls 
have performed under the leadership of 
Miss Walinski and co-captains Susan Bart- 
lett and Nancy Muir.

DRILL TEAM 

In various school functions such as football games, bas- 
ketball games, and assemblies, the drill team is often on

tines. These routines are completely original, and are writ- 
ten by the members of the team. Assisting the team direc- 
tor, Mrs. Broadbent, are managers Judy Potts and Suzanne 
Buxton.

LEADERS' CORPS 



Each year competition for Girls' Leaders Corps is held in all girls' physical education classes. The 
students thus selected form an organization which is an important part of the class, in that the members 
are allowed to develop their capacity for leadership by assisting their classmates in the work being 
covered. For this reason their work is also an aid to the teacher as well as to the class members. 



INTRAMURALS 






INTRAMURALS 

Intramural sports enable the student to enjoy the 
benefits of sports participation during the activity 
period. Free from the pressures and obligations that 
accompany membership in one of the other sports 
programs, all four classes compete against each 
other in such activities as softball, basketball, track, 
tennis, volleyball, and swimming.

The Synchronized Swimming team, which swims 
under the motto, "Sync or swim," has been a feature 
at Minnechaug for the past two years. The entire 
team joined in the exhibitions of 1960 and 1961, 
which included many highly skilled routines and 
several comedy acts.

of the physical education department. Last year special honors were given 
to Penny Brown and Jean Frappier for their performances at the Massachu- 
setts State High School Gymnastics Meet at Framingham.
